I stopped in Sherwood Farm’s air-conditioned farm stand today to say hi to Tom and see if I could get a few varieties of peppers, including some hot ones. He farms on five different parcels of land so he’s got a really wide variety of beautiful produce to choose from.
Well I got the peppers plus a great surprise, CT grown cherries. They’re from a “guy” in Glastonbury and Tom started bringing them in three years ago to meet the pleas from customers for local cherries.They’re the perfect summer dessert eaten right out of hand.
If your garden is looking a little sad right now, get your hands on some
squash seeds and plant them. In this weather Tom says they’ll be sprouted in two days and you’ll have a nice fall crop to harvest.
Sherwood Farm is on 355 Sport Hill Road (Rt. 59) just across from the Helen Keller School. The farm stand is open 7 days a week in summer from 10-6 on weekdays and 9-6 on weekends.
